Space Angel - The Gladiators 31




One of the first cartoons made dedicated for the early TV market. In the 1960's animation was an expensive precess costing up to $2,500 a minute to produce. Space Angel cartoons were mostly storyboads where the only movement was the mouths of the characters(Syncro-Vox system). This animation style was similar to Clutch Cargo Cartoons!

Space Angel was the code name of Scott McCloud, an agent for the Earth Bureau of Investigation. Devoted to the security and welfare of the solar system, McCloud and his crew roamed the universe in the super-spaceship, Starduster. The crew, who made up the bureau's Interplanetary Space Force, included Taurus, an expert pilot and mechanic; Crystal, a specialist in electronics and astro-navigation; and Crystal's father, Professor Mace, head of base station Evening Star.

Many people believe that Taurus the ship's engineer may have been the model for Star Trek's scotty! The similarities bee tween the two characters are just too similar to be a coincidence.

These Cartoons were run on kid shows in the 1960's! In 1962 when this show was in syndication you could find Space Angel on Kid shows like the Marshal J show http://captainerniesshowboat.com/marshalj.html

Marshal J didn't have a big budget so Space angel, Clutch Cargo and eventually Hanna Barbera cartoons fit the bill perfectly. I have very fond memories of these kid shows and I kind of miss them. So sit back and be a kid again! Enjoy!
